Brace yourselves. I am NOT a cute cookie decorator. However, I pushed through and made these Christmas Lights Cookies to impress my kid.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

For the small-batch royal icing:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large egg white

For decorating:

  • 1 small tube of black icing for writing
  • handful mini M&Ms

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together with an electric mixer the butter and sugar. Once light and fluffy, add the egg yolk and vanilla and almond extracts.
  3. Once well incorporated, sprinkle over half the flour mixture and beat gently until combined, then sprinkle over the rest. Beat until no streaks of flour remain, but be careful not to over-mix.
  4. Dust a clean counter top with flour, and dump the dough out onto it. Gather it into a ball and press it into a 1/2″ thick round disk. Flour your rolling pin, then roll out the dough out big enough to cut out about 8 shapes. Place the shapes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Gather the dough scraps and re-roll to cut out 4 more shapes and place them on the cookie sheet. You should get 12 cookies.
  5. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for the minutes while you preheat the oven to 350.
